We tied the knot this past Saturday (9/14/19)! I have been feeling so thankful that we are finally married!! Smiley ring Everything was great overall, with a few standout moments.

Our ceremony was amazing, and I will never forget how it felt to walk down the aisle as legal partners finally. Smiley heart The weather was PERFECT for our outdoor ceremony. We made good use of the patio attached to the reception space as well. The florist shipped flowers from Hawaii because I had briefly mentioned they are my favorite, so it was a nice surprise to see them! My wife also surprised me with a large frame for photos that she personalized and decorated.

Our photographer was the BEST: we found out she can break-dance, and we got a album of Polaroids at the end of the night that she had taken throughout the day. It was totally unexpected and a great gift. A few un-edited pictures are below.

There were also a few snags, but nothing we couldn't handle. For instance, I got a pretty bad migraine (they are chronic for me), but thankfully, I had meds and a bridal room to crash in for 30 minutes. I got back out and enjoyed every last second! Perhaps the only actual issue was that the bartender was rude to a few guests. She also would disappear for about 15 minutes without asking anyone to cover for her. She did not like being called out for her behavior! No idea what prompted this attitude, or whether she just doesn't like her job.

Overall, I am super pleased with how the day went! It feels so great to be married and to have the wedding done. My advice for future brides: make sure you and your spouse are able to spend some time together the day-of, it makes you appreciate the little things even more. On to the next chapter in life: moving!

Here are un-edited pictures from the first half of our day:

    I love your dress & shoes, super classy! I'm glad you were prepared for the migraine, I can't tell you how many migraine medications I had available & ice packs in case I got one! I got botox in my head a month before though, so I didn't get any migraines (which was amazing). I'm sorry about the bartender! Make sure to leave a review & email management so they know. We had a weird experience with a chair masseuse (she was just kind of rude - I hired her for massages while everyone was getting ready) and I emailed her manager who was super responsive & happy I had told him.

    Beautiful and Congrats!! That is my fear!! I get chronic migraines also! Don't eat in time, hair too tight, dehydrated, too hot, too much excitement, and sometimes just no reason at all.
